A GBLxAPI Profile Extension

A Core Building Block

Domain is an xAPI vocabulary extensions type in the GBLxAPI profile used to represent terms and specific URIs at a high level of an educational category.  In educational standards, they are often referred to as domains or a discipline.

xAPI Extension - Subdomain

The "Subdomain" xAPI context extension includes over 35 gblxapi URIs that support common contextual references for subdomains and diciplines for english language arts, math, science, and social studies.  The URIs are part of the GBLxAPI vocabulary catalog to improve data normalization and interoperability across k-12 educational applications.  The URIs were developed during the research phase of this community project.
